Are you really suggesting that someone could jump down your throat?

Stupid idiot :roll:

I thought you'd embarrassed yourself enough there John, but clearly not.

I asked a genuine question - if nothing else trying to understand your 'relative' antipathy towards Bowie. You know, what drives your dislike of alot of the 'hoopla' on here around him. What musically you find dislikeable about him.

But it's clear from your refusal you didn't actually post with any intention of having a debate. You were just throwing a little bomb in there. You're probably thinking I took the bait - I happen to think I've conducted myself reasonably and only asked for an explanation of your musical views.

But let's face it, you didn't really want to discuss "Absolute Beginners" at all. You just fancied a fight.

Thanks for the laugh, Pete.

Anyway.....I love Absolute Beginners sweeping romanticism. I think it really captures that initial rush of love and adoration you experience with a new partner beautifully. The vulnerability, the nervousness, the conviction, all that jazz. Great record.

I know you really like John, G, and he can't do much wrong with lots of members here, but he posted in this discussion (and that's what people are having) about overreaching chord changes. DAD asked him about this and he replied by posting some possible chords. I mentioned that the chords weren't particular special. In fact his chords were probably wrong.
Instead of engaging with the discussion he acted like a twat, calls in his buddy Gash, and was insulting.
And still, rather than engage in discussion, he won't. I have mentioned that had he explained himself it could have led to an interesting discussion, but John doesn't like that. He'd rather deflect.


Why we hide from the fact that he's the ultimate BCB troll, I don't know.

I didn't understand the chords thing but I took it more to mean that histrionic Bowie thing where he goes a bit over the top. See also: Wild is the Wind, which Coan hates.

You must know pedantically trying to interrogate him is not going to yield any great insight, so why bother?
I knew what meant. He finds the record too over the top. It's a side of Bowie not everyone likes.

And that would have been a worthwhile discussion.
But he didn't say that.
